Machine Learning Summer School in The Netherlands

July 8-11, 2019 in Breukelen, The Netherlands

Machine Learning is enabling a transformation in the software industry without precedents. New Machine Learning powered predictive applications are performing jobs that were previously considered exclusive to highly skilled humans. We are already witnessing a new wave of innovation that is changing the face of all sectors of the economy. To address this market need, BigML in collaboration with Nyenrode Business University in The Netherlands are bringing the first Dutch edition of our Summer School in Machine Learning to The Netherlands.
